Eat, Drink And Relive Columbia Restaurant History In Ybor City As If It’s 1903!
On Dec. 17, 1903, Orville Wright first took powered flight, making history by staying aloft for 12 seconds.
Cuban immigrant Casimiro Hernandez, Sr. made history on the same date when he opened Saloon Columbia in Tampa’s Ybor City, laying the foundation for what would become the Columbia – today Florida’s oldest restaurant.
On Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2013, the Columbia in Ybor City will celebrate the 110th anniversary of Saloon Columbia, predating the restaurant by two years.
The 110th anniversary celebration features:
• A six-course dinner
• Period drinks

The original 60-seat saloon, a blend of American-style saloon and European-style café, eventually became the world-famous 1,700-seat Columbia Restaurant – owned and operated continuously by 4th and 5th generation members of the Hernandez Gonzmart family.
Since the saloon opened, Columbia has served millions of patrons, worked with hundreds of charitable organizations, and continued to serve signature dishes such as Spanish Bean Soup just the way Casimiro Hernandez Sr. did.
